What the primaries mean
A reshaping of the political landscape is taking place across America

SUPER TUESDAY, USA—The primary elections held on June 8th point to one inescapable fact—the political landscape is changing in America. Forget about republican, democrat, or independent, they are merely labels that no longer reflect how a politician will vote when it comes to any particular piece of legislation. Better terms are available to identify politicians rather than party affiliation: liberal, conservative, and vacillating.

The first has been rejected by a majority of Americans as we’ve seen in recent polls, yet they hold a strong base and the far left is angry the current democrat majority and the president aren’t liberal enough. Oddly, in the democrat primaries, the prevailing candidates are speaking about fiscal responsibility and distance themselves from the White House. While conservatives certainly showed up on Tuesday to push the Tea Party movement into mainstream politics. As for the moderates, they’ll sit on the sidelines until November but the vacillating politicians are in trouble come the fall.
